Eliot Kate Homer

Here she is! Our little love bug. Can't believe I had yet to blog about our newest addition. Even more so, I can't believe it has been 9 months since she has come into our home. On one hand, it feels like I just had her and on the other hand, it's hard to remember what life was like before she was here. Eliot is such a happy baby with the sweetest little spirit. She is absolutely the cutest thing we have ever laid eyes on..besides Hudson, of course. ;) She is adventurous, daring, inquisitive, and brave. She is also affectionate and sensitive. It amazes us how different she and Hudson are. However, they definitely have the same eyes. Big, bright, and VERY blue! Hudson and Eliot adore each other and we love watching them interact. 
Eliot, we are so glad that you are part of our family! We love you sweet girl!!

We made this little video shortly after Eliot was born. Enjoy! :)

I have taken a picture of her every month with these little monthly onesie stickers. It is so much fun to see how quickly they change. I sure wish I had these stickers with Hudson. 

Eliot - 9 months

nicknames - nellie, ellie, ellie bug, love bug, sweeties, sweetie nel, kater bug, kater tot

Weight - 17 lbs 6 oz (25%)
Height - 27 in (35%)
Head - 18.5 in (99%) :)

Sleeps through the night like a champ! Goes to bed at 6:30pm and sleeps until 6:30/7am. 
Has never really been the best napper during the day, but is getting better. (Took a 3hr nap today - it.was.AWESOME!)

Still likes to be swaddled. 

LOVES to eat! Not a picky eater by any means, but is not a fan of peaches. Sweet potatoes are her favorite. 

She has 3 teeth. All on the bottom.

She is still nursing and she loves it. :)

Favorite toys are Sophie, her lamaze giraffe, and her pink purse teether. 

She loves to watch Signing Time, Sesame Street, Tigger and Pooh, and....drumroll please.......Spookley the Square Pumpkin. (I"m not sure why both of my kids seem to have an obsession with this show??)

She is a very fast crawler. She knows what she wants and she goes for it!

Has pulled her self up to a standing position once.

Likes the jumperoo.

Loves to watch Hudson dance around and make silly noises. He makes her laugh, which he thinks is hysterical so he starts laughing and then, well, you get the picture... :)

She becomes very "vocal" when she's tired. Says baa baa baa and daa daa daa. 

LOVES her mommy. ;)

My kids love Spookley, too! We have the book!

Eliot is adorable! I just want to squeeze her and kiss her chubby cheeks!

Can't believe she's 9 months already! She's darling and I'm so glad I'm finally having a baby so all of our kids can play together :)
